Southern Styria, from vines exclusively grown in Leutschach a.d.W. and Gamlitz.
A warm and humid Mediterranean climate causes a long vegetation period. Cool nights effect unique varieties of aromas.
The soil structure is characterised by firm sediment layers, deposited in this sea basin million years ago. The soil consists of fine marine sediments (geologically described as “Schlier”), as well as of different kinds of sand, conglomerate and gravel.
